    So here's the thing. Last night my blackberry was almost drained(no radio use) so I plugged it in the wall charger. I left it like that the whole night,only to wake up and experience the red light issue so popular amongst older blackberry models,it just doesn't turn on. I've tried battery pulls,dozens I might say,the os reload won't work cause the phone doesn't reboot like other red light issues,therefore being undetectable by windows(not exactly undetectable as much as it says there's a problem with it and it doesn't recognize it). I'm not really keen on going to the carrier to complain about it since I did not back it up and I'm pretty sure they would just give me another phone,rendering all my efforts to recover my data useless... If I'm completely sure there's no other option I'll talk to them. Have you guys got any ideas? I would really really appreciate it. A more accurate description of the problem is that the red light turns on when plugging the bb into the wall charger. If I pull the battery out of the bb after I plug it into the wall,the red light stays on for a little bit longer than 30 seconds and then turns off.Quickly inserting the battery back turns it right back on(this was one of the "fixes" that were supposed to magically work).

    I have not had this issue yet (thankfully), but I'm assuming it's nuked/bricked. I just did a search and I assume this is what might help you.

    I can't try that since mine isn't rebooting continously. The red light just flashes,and connecting it via usb cable to the computer doesn't work,since the phone needs to be turned on...

    Remove the battery, plug the charger to the phone and now re-insert battery, and leave for 8 hours atleast.
